Jeppson Reunion, part one.

I think this might be a little glimpse of what heaven will be like. Beautiful mountains, trees, lake, people you love. . . . 160 people for 3 days of fun in the sun and lots of activities.
Rock climbing wall. Charchar gave it a try.

Pony rides. Can you believe Clara got on that horse?

Birthday party for Gramma Decker-88 years young. Tiffers Dad was the fire marshall.

Some singing to honor Gramma Decker.

Rope climbing--75 ft. high. The MOST difficult activity on the challenge course. Christine and Riley made it to the top.

Kevin and Ricky enjoying the "meat free" menu at this 7th Day Adventist camp.

Charlie with his "Chay Wagon" pinewood derby car.

There were lovelies on the lake.

And Liesl won the bid for her favorite auction item.

The tweens had sooooooo much fun together.

Note: Group shot of all 160 plus the Parks Family photos yet to come. Other cameras were in charge of those shots.
This reunion was super fun and came at an important time for me. Being with all my siblings, nieces and nephews and my mom was comforting and reminded me yet again about the eternal perspective. Laughing, loving, playing, watching---all wonderful. FYI--these people are some of the best in the world. My mom is responsible for it all Her conversion to the gospel at age 18, raising 7 children mostly by herself, her work ethic and integrity--produced all these great people. Thank you. . . . .thank you. Love you mom.

Yeah, Memzy's "reaching for the peach", all right.

I have a small request. I wanna see a pic of the infamous quilt that everyone contributed to.
